A loan of $1,000 helped to buy farming supplies.


Apolonia's story

Apolonia is 72 years old. She’s a widow living with her son who is her main priority in life. What she wants is to buy farming supplies for coffee crop maintenance. She has a field that is apt for this crop and she wants to support the planting she did so that it will start to produce a harvest. She wants to generate profits for her own and for her son’s wellbeing as well as to use the loan to get ahead and establish a small coffee plantation for herself.

This is her first loan with FUDECOSUR. She has had no previous loans with state banks. FUDECOSUR has provided her the loan with the best terms and a much lower interest rate.
